Welcome to Teaser Tuesday...on a Wednesday. I hope you guys will forgive me for getting my days mixed up. ;) At any rate, I'm here to tease you with a swoony scene from my upcoming release, AS YOU BREATHE AGAIN. It's the second companion book in my The Walker Boys series, and you can find out more about it here.
For now, enjoy this teaser! (Fair warning: it hasn't been heavily edited yet, so please ignore any mistakes. :))
Killing the engine, Reece got out of his truck. He strolled around to Lanie’s side, opening the door for her. “Come on, let’s do some actual star-gazing.” He gave her a crooked smile.
She put her arms around his neck and drew his head down to hers. She teased his mouth with hers, her tongue seeking entrance. While she was kissing him, she wrapped her legs around his waist.
“You can’t see the stars from here,” Reece mumbled, backing away from the truck, cradling her.
He carried her to the truck bed, setting her down long enough to lower the tailgate. Then he went back to the truck, pulling several blankets from behind the back of the seat, left from the last long trip he’d made with Jamie. It was a warm night, but that didn’t mean he wanted her laying on his uncomfortable truck bed. He spread out the blankets, then helped her up into the back of the truck. She looked so damn right there that he almost couldn’t believe this was actually happening.
Reece laid beside Lanie, watching her smile up at him. “You’re the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen,” he murmured.
“You’ve got me.” She reached out, her palm to his cheek. “You don’t need any more lines.”
“That’s the thing,” he answered, ghosting his lips across her jawline, “it wasn’t a line.” He pressed kisses down her throat, looking up at her. His heart felt like it was in his throat. “It never is with you.”
Sighing, Lanie wove her fingers through his hair. “Goddamn, you’re trying to kill me, aren’t you?” She mumbled something about “death by farm boy” under her breath, but he heard her.
Reece straddled her, hands braced on either side of her body. He put his lips to the shell of her ear. “If you go, I’m going with you, Delaney.”
